Moreover, when David touched her, ruffled her hair, took the particles in Abel’s body ready to dash through the sky. Only one thing David lacked, he was a friend of Abel’s.
In David’s eyes, Abel was a tomboyish girl who had always been in orbit in his life since childhood. very comfortable with Abel. David doesn’t need to protect the image in front of the girl. Unfortunately, this excessive comfort requires insensitivity. Without David realizing, his promise to become a criminal Abel forever turned back to hurt her feelings.
Vanessa wrote the story of a friendship between Abel and David who experienced twists and turns with love. Abel and David have established friendship with Abel since they were 5 years old. Abel and David are always together at any time so that without them knowing it grows comfortable feeling when they are together. Abel really hopes their relationship is not only limited to friends.

This novel uses the POV (Point of View) system to clarify the story from various perspectives. The author displays a mixed plot so that readers find it difficult to guess the continuation of the story to the end.
Abel did not want his friendship to be threatened because of his selfishness if he expressed his feelings honestly maybe their friendship would be broken and maybe David would not be close to him. Abel was tormented when he learned that the woman David was liking was Lunetta, his own best friend. Abel still trying to be strong and not selfish, because Abel did not want to lose David as his best friend. Until in the end Lunetta made David realize that the woman David was supposed to love was Abel.
the language that is often used everyday makes the story in this novel much loved by language readers who are easy to read and very clear. Besides that, it is like a novel in general. The time settings used are easy for readers to understand. The last part of the story is a little forced. This does not mean that this story is not good, it’s just that the problem written by the writer is too fictional. When viewed in terms of plot, characterization, and theme, this novel is very suitable if the reader is a teenager who is still in middle or middle school, because the conflict written is still too mild and very teenager
